Vihti is a municipality in Southern Finland.


Vihti is part of Greater Helsinki -region, and while it's also bedroom suburb for Helsinki, it also has interesting characteristics of its own.

Confusing namesake for visitors may happen, as the municipality is called Vihti and the former municipality seat, officially Vihdin kirkonkylä, is also referred as "Vihti" in bus windows etc. Current municipality seat is in town of Nummela.

Get in

Around 50 buses daily connect Nummela to Helsinki, while Vihti town can be reached with around 25 daily services.

Also express-services which run from Helsinki to Pori and Rauma take and leave passengers from Highway 2 intersections at Nummela and Vihti town

Get around

Both centers of Nummela and Vihti kk are easily covered by feet.

There's distance about 10 kilometres (6 miles) between these towns, which is linked with around 25 buses a day (less so in Saturdays and Sundays).

More remote sights are easiest accessed by car or bike, as the bus services tend to be very limited.


  • Pyhän Birgitan kirkon rauniot (Ruins of St Bridget's Church), [1]. No admission.
  • Vihdin kirkko (Vihti Church). Free.
  • Nuuksion kansallispuisto (Nuuksio National Park), (Tervalampi). Free.


All of the municipality, except perhaps the semi-urban twist of Nummela is located by beautiful nature. And as Everyman's Rights allow visitor to enjoy as freely as native Finn, there is multiple options, including skiing, swimming, trekking and more.


While Vihti isn't exactly shopper's haven, it boasts totally adequate shopping options for most circumstances.

Groceries and such can be easily (and with most inexpensive price) found in Nummela's two competing hypermarkets: Citymarket and Prisma. If you are staying longer and looking for cheap trekking equipment, fishing equipment, tools, car spare parts and alike, your best bet is Hong Kong. Nummela is also home of innovative textile company Globe Hope, which have a factory outlet at Harjutie 14
